With the assistance of Oakland police, Berkeley Police Department officers arrested two male suspects while conducting a burglary search warrant at a home in West Oakland Thursday morning.

At about 8:40 a.m., Berkeley Police Department Investigations Division detectives were approaching the house that was the focus of the search when a male who was standing outside the house, located on the 700 block of Sycamore Street, saw the team and ran, according to Berkeley police Sgt. Mary Kusmiss. While the detectives proceeded to execute the warrant, the suspect fled along the side of the home and was going over the fence when the team heard a shot being fired.

The Oakland Police Department assisted Berkeley police in setting up a perimeter and containment of the block, Kusmiss said. Oakland police officers detained the suspect who had been in front of the home at the time of the search and emerged from the block onto 26th Street.

BPD detectives arrested two male adults, though the suspect who was the focus of the search warrant was not at the home, according to Kusmiss. BPD, OPD and members of the Oakland Fire Department searched the area for the gun. As of Thursday afternoon, the gun has not been located.

No one was injured during the incident.
